Making Sense of Mental Illness, Part 1
March 21, 2019
In this exciting podcast, Dr. Randolph Nesse, a pioneer in evolutionary psychiatry, discusses his new book "Good Reasons for Bad Feelings." Nature doesn’t care whether we feel bad—our emotions are shaped by natural selection to maximize the survival of the species. But there’s a mismatch between our ancient emotional wiring and the circumstances of modern life. What’s the purpose of emotions? Is anxiety natural? What’s the evolutionary benefit of depression? Why do schizophrenia, autism and bipolar disorder persist when they’re so harmful to sufferers? Why is addiction so prevalent? Are we really in the throes of a modern epidemic of childhood mental disorders? Are we over-diagnosing and treating mental conditions that are a natural consequence of our wiring? What’s the take-home message of evolutionary psychiatry for patients and clinicians? Click HERE for part 2.

Clinical Focus: The Plot Against Keto, Part 1
March 14, 2019
“Keto Crotch” became a viral meme in the media and was widely disseminated on social platforms. It’s a repudiation—in very personal terms—of the popular trend toward low-carb and Keto diets. But something’s fishy about Keto Crotch—there are strong indications that it’s part of an organized campaign to impugn the low-carb movement, which is gaining major popular inroads, and is threatening the bottom-lines of powerful commercial interests like Weight Watchers, pasta and bread makers, cereal companies, the beverage industry and other purveyors of carbs. Is there any truth to the claim that low-carb diets imperil feminine hygiene? What’s the evidence for a conspiracy to generate a media buzz via paid “influencers”? And that’s not all: Dubious studies have spawned headlines that suggest low-carb diets cause atrial fibrillation, stoke cravings, and contribute to digestive problems—what’s the truth? Are we being deliberately manipulated? Click HERE for part 2.
